Waiting for an outcome

We advise all students to remember that when you’re applying for exceptional circumstances, you should work to the deadline until you have received confirmation that your application has been approved.

If you don’t know the outcome of your application, you should submit what work you have done by your deadline (be that the original deadline or a revised deadline because you’re using the extension allowed by the ISP), if you want to ensure that it is marked.

If you are unable to submit your work by the original deadline, submit it as soon as possible following the original deadline, to ensure that any allowance which is granted retrospectively covers this period. Do not wait to hear an outcome for your application before submitting your work. This will not be deemed grounds for a further extension.  

If you are given another opportunity to take an assessment, e.g. a resit or a retake, then the work you have already submitted will not be marked.
